E110L History of the Earth
Geologists divide the history of the earth into four eons. Each is represented by a strip of illustrations and captions prefaced by an introduction. Our planet began as a sphere of molten metal. Heavier ores sunk to the center, resulting in gravity. As Earth cooled, its crust was formed. Other topics include the creation of the moon, the appearance of various atmospheres, the formation of continents, continental drift, snowball Earth, and the development of life. The third through fifth pictures on the bottom row reflect the period covered by Eras of Life. The last picture shows the near future - the results of humans destroying the environment.
E107L Introduction to Gemstones
It then presents an assortment of jewelry. The focus is on affordable items, including some that enthusiastic can make themselves. Next comes non-jewerly use of gemstones - collectible eggs, carvings, decorative slabs, and royal crowns. Of course we had to include a famous Faberge egg. The bottom row presents all the birthstones, in accordance with modern-day standards.
E109L Collectible Fossils
This poster presents the fossils that are widely available to private collectors. These include the well-known fish from Wyoming’s Green Mountain Formation, the famous ferns from St. Claire, Pennsylvania, the Chesapecten so abundant around the Chesapeake Bay and the petrified wood of the American Southwest. It includes such favorites as trilobites and coprolite. The latter is petrified dinosaur dung. Kids love talking about "dinosaur poo poo." Many outstanding specimens are shown. All are accompanied by an illustration of the prehistoric species, except in cases where appearance is unknown due to soft parts not fossilizing. In such cases, an illustration of a closely related modern species is presented. Interesting captions provide information and cite the geological period in which the species. A geological time chart puts everything in perspective.
Arachnids differ from insects as they have eight legs. Insects have six. The title provides a comprehensive overview of the entire class / clade, which includes mites and tick, spiders, scorpions and other critters. Each group is introduced by informative text. An abundance of outstanding illustration show representative species.
This exciting new posters shows all the largest species. Some were close to 200 feet long - the length of four school buses. Also shown are some of the more unique species. Mamenchisaurus had 31 foot long neck that comprised half of the body length of the animal. Camarasaurus vertebrae were hollowed out or riddled with passages and cavities, which inspired its name, "Chambered Lizard."
The unique body structure of these fascinating animals is explored. Could they rear upright like a horse. Other interesting topics are intelligence, teeth and diet, eggs, skin texture and social behavior.
